I like the uniqueness of living somewhere that is so close to the sea. The community of the highschool is close knit, and everybody knows everybody. The only downside is that the school doesn’t have AP classes except online.

This school enviorment is a sad one. with lots of the kids doing drugs and the horrible sports program any one with an interest in sports i don't recommed you attend. Also Weight Room is horrible
Due to the smallness, you get to interact with people you normally wouldn't and in that respect its pretty cool. Also, sports and arts are more available. However, the tinniness of it all can be suffocating and overwhelming at times.
